Positive impact

Moving beyond zero impact

You get up in the morning wanting to make a difference. When you come home in the evening, there's nothing more satisfying than beeing able to say: "Today I made an impact. It mattered to my customer, together we cut cost, cut energy, saved emissions and waste, we created a better workplace".

We develop solutions here and now that enable better performance today and for our common future. 

Where things are rotating, you will find SKF's solutions having a positive impact. A few examples:

...and we think that many of the Sustainable Development Goals can be progressed by engineered solutions.

The positive impact comes from reduced friction, weight, material, lubrication and water contamination and improved reliability, energy efficiency, health and safety.

SKF contributes or is impacted by the Global Goals in two main ways:
